Default SU whisper white look-alike

Are there any sources besides SU that sell paper similar to the whisper white? TIA

Can I ask if there's something in particular about Whisper White you do NOT like that makes you want to to hunt for something else as an alternative?

I love Neenah solar white 110#. I bought reams of it when a local paper store was going out of business.

I have heard wonderful things about the Neenah solar white! And, jumping in to answer the question of why...maybe price? I have heard that the Neenah is less money and you get more paper so that could be the ticket right there.

Edited: Just checked and I am incorrect! SU WhWh paper comes to $0.21 per sheet from SU (plus Shuipping) and the Solar White from SSS is $0.31 per sheet plus shipping so cost must not be it! OOPS

If you buy it by the ream, it's cheaper. The 80# comes out to about 15 cents/sheet and the 110# is about 18 cents/sheet. When I bought mine on sale, it was about 5 cents/sheet.

I just wish WW was thicker - it can be kind of flimsy for a card base. But I love the look and feel of it so I still use it.

I agree. That's why I like the 110#.

I love whisper white to stamp on but was wondering if su was the only company that sold it. I like many stamp companies and just wondered if others offered something similar.

MFT has a smooth white cardstock that retails for the same price as SU. I haven't tried it yet.
